Chelsea have signed so many African players since Roman Abramovich secured ownership of the club some years ago. Nigerian players in particular are not left out of the equation. The likes of Victor Moses and Celestine Babayaro have represented Chelsea within the last two decades. This proves that Chelsea should endeavour to sign more Nigerian players in the future. Below are four Nigerian players that Chelsea should sign during the January transfer window.
1. Terem Moffi
Gernot Rohr has extended an invitation to Terem Moffi ahead of the next international break. This means that he will soon make a senior appearance for the Super Eagles of Nigeria. He has scored a few goals since the beginning of this campaign. Chelsea should really look at the possibility of signing him to play alongside Romelu Lukaku.
2. Wilfred Ndidi
Thomas Tuchel needs to bring in a new defensive midfielder to play with N'Golo Kante next year. It is already clear that Saul Niguez does not have what it takes to be a choice player at Stamford Bridge. Another player Thomas Tuchel should turn to is Wilfred Ndidi. The Nigerian star has excelled since he secured a transfer to Leicester City.
3. Chidera Ejuke
Christian Pulisic has been injured for a very long time now. The American winger may take a long time to recover from his various injury problems. This implies that Thomas Tuchel should look for an emergency replacement for Christian Pulisic in January. He should also take a close look at Chidera Ejuke. The Nigerian winger would suit Thomas Tuchel's fashion of football. This is because he has a conservative style of play.
4. Oghenekaro Etebo
The Nigerian midfielder currently plays for Watford in the English Premier League. He has played for some other football clubs around Europe. This means that he has the experience to help Thomas Tuchel . The German tactician should make an attempt to sign Oghenekaro Etebo from Watford in January.
